CONGRATULATIONS to the Essex Young Eagles finishing third in their heat and joint seventh out of the 22 teams, having been given a B+ grade in London on Saturday 7th July

The band produced by far their best overall ringing in their test piece of 160 rows of call changes and were very pleased with their achievement, even though they did not qualify for the final at St James, Garlickhythe. In the eight years of the competition this is only the second occasion that we have received this high a grade. With three new members in the team plus a different conductor this was an extremely admirable performance. Seven different towers and four Districts were represented by those that rang in the heat.

Essex Young Ringers' is an informal group made up of any young ringers of all abilities from Essex under the age of 25. Parents and other supporters are encouraged to come along to any events too. We want to get every young ringer to join in so don't worry if you can only ring rounds at the moment — all are welcome. Put the dates in your diary and join in! We have regular monthly practices at different towers mainly in the South Eastern District as it is more central for everyone but we do venture into other Districts too.

If you haven't been to a Young Ringers' practice before, why not make it your new year's resolution to try it out this year? We ring lots of rounds and call changes as well as some method ringing - everyone is welcome!

Young Ringers Practices These practices are open to all young ringers of all abilities and as the practices evolve we will then select a team to represent the Association in the next Ringing World National Youth Contest.

Please encourage your young ringers to come along, they have the opportunity to meet with other ringers of their own age, to make new friends and enjoy the relaxed ringing atmosphere.

The sessions are led by Christina Brewster with help from other experienced ringers. The ringing is usually run by one of the young people.

Monthly practices for our young ringers are usually held on the last Sunday of the month, between 4.30pm – 6.00pm

There is a Facebook group called Essex Young Ringers. This is a closed group and you should contact Christina to gain access

The EYR website is where future events could be listed, and where reports of events, achievements by young ringers, photos etc could be posted.

If you would like further information about Essex Young Ringers, please contact , the Youth Coordinator

If you would like to see what the group has been up to recently, follow this link to Past Events

This link to the Essex Young Ringers Facebook Group takes you to a forum where young ringers can discuss ideas for events, advertise what is happening at towers across the county and share achievements in ringing.

It is a great way to make friends, to ring with others of your own age, and to have a good time.
